We proceeded to Kintyre and discovered Skipness Castle, at the end of the B8001. It was built in the 13th century by the MacSweens and was used as a stronghold against the vikings. In 1499 it was turned over to The Campbell Earl of Argyll and finally abandoned in the 17th century. There is a chapel dedicated to Saint Brendan close to the castle. You'll have to walk over the sheep's green to get there. Oh, and by the way, the castle is admission free!
